A closer look at the gold-wrapped Audi R8 V10 Plus

Remember that gold Audi R8 V10 Plus we talked about last week? It’s back.

We have managed to get a hold of more pictures and also details about the striking body finish. First of all, the gold finish is actually a full body wrap rather than an optional Individual paint. That being said, we’re almost certain you can order the supercar with a virtually identical look if you can afford to pay the premium commanded by the Individual program.

The car is currently being displayed at Audi Forum Neckarsulm and it has received this look-at-me finish after the R8 was voted by Auto Bild’s readers as the best model in the sports car category. There’s more to this car than its gold wrap as it also has the optional 20-inch black wheels, a central yellow body strip (with black borders) and a glossy black look for the front vent fins, carbon side blades, mirror caps, rear wing and diffuser.

After winning Auto Bild’s Golden Steering Wheel award, the R8 is now getting ready to make the switch from a fixed metal roof to an electrically foldable fabric top as the Spyder version is due next year. We will probably see it as early as March in Geneva.
